Yohaku Shoten – Bookstore ‘Margin’
UCHIDA Seira / ISHIHATA Ai / KOBAYASHI Kikka [Japan]
This is a project that aims to give value to the written notes, lines, yellowing, missing pages, and stains of books that would normally be deemed to have low worth by paradoxically perceiving them as things of personal value, and distributing them as “well-thumbed books”. Using Amazon, one of the giant distributors today, together with the blog service Tumblr, “well-thumbed books” are being collected, assessed, and sold.
